I had the same problem with my 95 Pickup when I got it a couple of years ago -- replaced water pump, thermostat, flushed radiator, etc. I finally noticed that the area where the radiator cap seats in the top tank (which is plastic) had a couple of gouges, which was keeping the cap from sealing properly. I cleaned it up as best I could, then bonded a large washer (used a grinder to get the exact size) into the neck for the radiator cap to seat on. Haven't had a problem since.

My 2001 nissan xterra 3.3l v6 starts and runs fine while cold. once it heats up it runs rough then shuts off until cool again. Any ideas?

Hi, there could be a few things causing that like your water thermostat may need renewing , radiator may need a flush out, could even be your water pump has given up. If you flush the radiator stick a new rad cap on .

Heating nissan sentra 1995

Have you checked to see if the thermostat is functioning correctly and is not jammed shut. That would cause overheating.

Drained radiator added prestone Radiator flush refilled and started overheating, drained radiator replaced thermostat and now I get no heat from heater,Radiator water is hot

disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

1995 Dakota 2.5 cylinder. Runs up to the hot mark then comes down to about half. It continues to do this. Replaced the thermostat, coolant temp sensor and heat sensor for the temp gauge, has proper coolant...

I would flush the heater core out:

open the hood and look on the firewall. There should be 2 rubber hoses going into the firewall and into the truck. If factory they will have spring clamps just like on the radiator hose. Remove both lines. Then get a hose and put it in one line and run the water until it comes out clear. Then do the same thing with the other side. Do this a couple of times. Then reconnect the 2 hoses and check the level of the radiator. Then start the car with the radiator cap off and wait a while for the thermostat to open and have the heater on so it will cycle through the whole system. Then top off as needed. This should fix your problem Tim

My 1997 nissan trucks hose was leaking so i replaced it then the water pump was leaking so i replased it now the moter over heats what do you think i should try next?

I would recommend that you flush the radiator, and change the thermostat. You may want to change out your clutch fan. If it spins freely when the engine is off with little to no resistance, then it is faulty. It should spin, but there will be noticeable resistance when doing so,

Van over heats it has a new waterpump and thermostat but there is no heat .........with the thermostat out it wont over heat but still no heat

Sounds like a clogged radiator and heater core. Over use of leak sealants, rust, sludge build up or other debris is likely cause. Remember that the heater core and radiator have very small passages and part of the same system of circulation, so what affects one, will affect the other, Try a good system flush before you invest any more money. Also check your temperature control cable for proper operation for your heat issue.Hope this helps.

Nissan path 95, boiling near to over heating

It certainly can cause the condition, but so can TONS of other items: coolant level, bubbles in the coolant (air bleeds), reaiator restrictions.

You could test the thermostat, pull it and put into measured temprature water and observe it as you raise the temprature...

2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.
